Clever, organized, devious & daring; they stole from the rich and gave to themselves. This is the gripping story of the all-female gang which terrorized London for over 100 years. A fascinating piece of lost women’s history, the play focuses on the 1920s when the gang was at the height of its power—and when the events took place which would come to mean its downfall.
**** “As soon as the lights come up, Margo MacDonald captivates, knowing how to keep an
audience in the palm of her hand…astonishing.”
—Ashleigh More, Broadway Baby
**** “…the attention of the audience never strays and remains ensnared in a captivating story.
The play is brilliantly written and exceptionally performed…you will be left wanting to know
more. Highly recommended.”
